FX wants Sheen tested for new show Anger Management, but the actor is angry, unmanageable.

Charlie Sheen may be cleaning up his act somewhat, but he's still far from a model employee. The Warlock is apparently concerned about his tiger blood coming back positive for drugs and has refused to take any drug tests while employed by FX, which is launching his new show Anger Management. "They shouldn't have hired me if they wanted it another way," he says. "They knew what they were getting. And they know it's not always going to be smooth sailing." So what happens if FX decides to fire him a result? It looks like it won't matter too much to Sheen—he says that the show will be his acting "swan song," and he hopes to shoot another 90 episodes by the end of 2014 before retiring. "Inside here, regardless of what the persona may be, I'm still the 7-year-old kid in the back of the class, afraid to raise his hand," he explains. "I don't want this—all of this—to extinguish that child, because it can, and I refuse to grow up." Considering his epic tirade against a female security guard in LA just last week, it looks like Sheen won't have to worry about being the poster boy for maturity anytime soon.
